how to pull off a win in the key battleground state of ohio and break through president obama's so-called midwestern firewall. his campaign is ensure shurg allies there is still a clear path to skrivictory. peter, tell us about this memo. >> reporter: the romney campaign is facing serious questions about the electoral college math. people in ohio here generally think obama has a slight lead also in wisconsin and iowa and nevada. three of those four would give obama the presidency. so the romney campaign knows they're going to have to answer questions about this on the sunday shows tomorrow and on the final days of the race. they circulated a confidential memo to top republican leaders and surrogates. we got our hands on it. this is what they're saying. they're saying they're putting the obama campaign on defense. quote, mitt romney is up or tied with obama in every key battleground state forcing obama on defense in states he won by double digits in 2008 like wisconsin, iowa, michigan, minnesota, and pennsylvania. with the campaigns even on the ground and in early vote, gop enthusia
obama said about these numbers this morning in ohio. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> i want to talk about the economics and the politics of the report with our chief business correspondent ali velshi and john avalon. they're in ohio talking to the voters. ali, let's start with you since you have an economics, numbers guy here. >> yeah. >> we looked at this, and the economy stated by cnn money, they were twpg 125,000 jobs, so this number was higher at 171,000. so you have figures in august and september, also higher than we thought. what do we say about the overall growth and the health of the economy and the recovery? >> you and i talked about this before. i like the jobs creation or job loss numbers. the establishment survey more than i like the unemployment number. by the way, i feel the same way about it when it's low and when it's high. this is both ways. if you are mitt romney you get to say, the unemployment rate has gone hig
not that the ohio people aren't working hard, too. they have a very impressive obama operation, but the republican operation compared to four years ago, it's not a comparison. much better. we're going to have an interesting day come tuesday. >> it's going to be exciting for the whole country. >>> last minute moves. a strategy that's either desperate or brilliant, depending on who you ask. mitt romney is making an 11th hour push for pennsylvania. a jackpot with 20 electoral votes. pouring 6 million into the state on advertising. he's never led in a single poll there since he became a nominee. cnn has that in the obama category, but the president's lead has been shrinking and polls show president obama had been up as much 11 and 1 points over the summer and fall, but in a quinnipiac poll, he was only up by four. paul and ryan along with john avlon in toledo, ohio. romney has outspent the president in pennsylvania since he became the nominee. i saw this. i was stunned when our producer looked at these numbers. of the 15 million total, just in this week alone. is this money well spent? >> i think it m
in the last election, but do you think that? >> president obama has had a small but steady lead in ohio. we think the romney campaign is looking at a saturation point. there's not much more than you can do except get out the vote. with money, the with the candidate's time more importantly, i think speaks to change the strategy because the current strategy isn't working. they're looking for alternate paths to 270. states where it looked like romney was pulling ahead in. florida, virginia, colorado. the fact the romney campaign is running an ad in florida trying to tie the president to castro and chavez speaks to insecurity on his part about whether the cuban population will come out to vote. i think this is evidence of a scramble to hit 270. >> and let's look at the map. i promised i would. paul and ryan. if romney could pull off a win in pennsylvania, this does make the path to 270 completely different. so, he wouldn't even need ohio. we have 237 for obama, 206 for romney. 95 up for grabs, so if romney gets pennsylvania, we call it a snatch because it's very difficult to do, he's in the lea
with a brand new poll out of ohio. how close is the race in the buckeye state. and later, the obama administration gets a boost from today's jobs report. so, this is not something i want to say, but i didn't say it. why are they talking about the president. you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. then don't get nickle and dimed by high cost investments and annoying account fees. at e-trade, our free easy-to-use online tools and experienced retirement specialists can help you build a personalized plan. and with our no annual fee iras and a wide range of low cost investments, you can execute the plan you want at a low cost. so meet with us, or go to etrade.com for a great retirement plan with low cost investments. ♪ for a great retirement plan with low cost investments. why they're always there to talk. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than ju
to the finish and mi both mitt romney and obama focusing on ohio. tracie potts has the latest on the race. >> reporter: good morning. take a look at these scheduled. it is clear, they will be very busy. governor romney on sunday alone is visiting four states in one day. the rest of the candidates will be in ohio 12 times between now and election day. both of them in ohio today. governor romney making visits to seven states between now and tuesday, tonight in ohio, he will be joined by 100 other politicians and celebrities backing his campaign. president obama, every single day between now and tuesday in ohio. both making closing arguments to voters. >> that's why i know what real change looks like. because i fought for it. i've got the scars to prove it. i've got gray hair to show for it. you fought for it too. and after all that we've been through together, we sure as heck can't give up now. >> look, the obama campaign is out there chanting. i drove by a group of protester, and they said four more years. we have our own chant. it's five more days, all right? >> candidates and a lot of vo
poll shows a significant jenter gab gap in ohio. more men for romney and more women for obama. two focus groups this weekend in ohio, one with men and one with women. >> who is undecided? why does mitt romney lag in ohio? >> i think it's a bunch of hard working people. it's manufacturing. everybody gets up. they go to work. romney, i think they look at him as the boss. obama, you can kind of sit down, talk to the guy one on one. >> i think part of it is, since kasic became governor and implemented his policies and turned things around, obama is getting part of the credit for what's happening in ohio. ohio is only at 7% unemployment. what he's done to sit there and turn the state around is unfortunately giving credit to the president. >> ohio, i think it's the auto industry. i think it's what obama did and when he stood behind the people and the auto workers. >> the unions in ohio is why obama is strong right now. >> show me by hands how many of you voted for him in 2008. how many of you are definitely voting for him in 2012. what the hell happened? >> the promises were not met. >>
morning to you, bill. the battle in ohio is all about jobs. president obama going after the romney ad, recent one on auto bail yet which the chrysler selling jeep to the italians who want to start producing jeep ins china. obama administration saying absolutely not true they're shipping jobs overseas. the romney campaign saying it is true they want to start producing jeeps in china and every job created in china is not a job created here in the united states. so the campaign trail governor romney will continue to pure the message of change versus the status quo, saying under his administration real change starts on day one and mocking the president for wanting to create jobs by creating a department of business headed up by a secretary of business. >> i don't happen to think that put being in a new chair in the cabinet room will bring new jobs to the people of america. so we've got a plan instead to do that. [applause] you see, i don't think that what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something about job creation. i think it would be helpful to have a pres
obama. frank luntz held two focus groups in ohio this week. >> who's undecided in a whole bumpk of you. why does mitt romney lag in ohio? >> i think it's a bunch of hard-working people. it's manufacturing. everybody gets up, they go to work. romney, i think they look at him like a boss, goit who's there. obama, i think, well, you can kind of sit down, talk to the guy. you know, one-on-one. >> i think part of it is, you know, since governor turned things around, obama is getting part of the credit for ohio. ohio is only at 7% unemployment. what he's done to turn the state around is, unfortunately, giving credit to the president. >> i think it's the auto industry, what obama did and stood behind the workers in the auto union. >> the unions in ohio is why obama's strong right now. >> show me by hand, how many of you voted for him in 2008? how many of you are definitely voting for him in 2012? what the hell happened? >> the promises weren't met. what we got is not what we thought we were going to get in 2008. >> i'm disappointed because he didn't do what he said he would do. but i'm not su
. florida, 48-47 for obama. ohio, 50-45 for obama. and finally virginia, 49-47 for obama. these three states very, very close. looking at the numbers, what do they tell you? >> reporter: they tell me, brooke, they're fascinating, in particular florida and virginia. these are the big three swing states. that's what we have been going through on the battleground bus tour. florida, virginia, ohio. mitt romney had real momentum coming out first debate. he had gotten a sizable or comfortable narrow, but narrow lead in florida, virginia, that seems to have dissipated where the two polls you mentioned have obama narrowly up and ohio has always been president obama's firewall. no republican has won the white house without winning ohio. that leaves something sizable good for chicago. there is so much noise around the polls now, the focus is on early voting and the ground game. it is no substitute for actual votes. and that's what folks of both campaigns right now. >> john avalon in the battleground bus tour in ohio. thank you. we'll shift the focus back to the aftermath, the special coverage here in
-- that are scheduled. so 17 events. obama has six events in ohio. you can see where his priorities -- three in wisconsin. two in colorado. iowa has one and one in nevada, virginia new hampshire and florida. that's all right? is that where you would be telling them to spend -- >> he wins ohio, he wins. i don't see there's any path for romney to win this without ohio. >> jennifer: if romney won everything else -- >> he could win everything else but it makes it almost impossible for him. i would be in ohio. i would be in virginia. i would be in iowa. >> jennifer: would you be in north carolina joe? >> no. >> jennifer: really? >> yeah. >> jennifer: even though early voting is -- what about florida? >> no. i would spend more time -- >> jennifer: 2 points up. >> you can block -- you know, you force the other campaign to spend money. you keep it tight and it is a chance -- there's absolutely no way he can get florida. >> the thing about this race which i've never seen before in the five presidential races i've worked on, the
drilling. and then bill clinton campaigning for president obama and how is it going to work? we'll have the numbers in ohio for you which are critical to the election. >> let's give the job to the man who has done the job so he can finish the job. >> cenk: yeah, 50/50. not so much. all right, later in the program you'll enjoy this. a he will elbow on the head. what for? awesome hypocrisy. stick around for the elbow of the day. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart. >> cenk: as we told you sandy has made landfall ten minutes ago, longer than that, in new jersey. it has affected many of the areas around new jersey as well. that was a picture of new york that we are a looking at on 57th street where a crane is suspended over head and everyone is worried to death over that. that is a building that we've done a story about--that has a $90 million apartment in it. this storm is taken a little more serious, it's affecting the rich--wow. we'll talk about that later in the show. when asked about the possible implications of the election, this is what president obama said. >> obama: i'm not
this radio commercial. >> barack obama says he saved the auto industry, but for who? ohio or china? under president obama, gm cut 15,000 american jobs. but they are planning to double the number of cars built in china, which means 15,000 more jobs for china. and now comes word that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. >> romney's campaign is running it in toledo, ohio. this spot is even more dishonest than the tv ad. not only does it double down on the jeep lie but it suggests the auto loan didn't save the auto industry. well, general motors, the general motors, responded to the ad today saying "at this stage, we're looking at a hubble telescope-length distances between campaign ads and reality. gm's creating jobs in the united states and repatriating profits back to this country should be a source of bipartisan pride." these ads also had jeep employees scared about losing their jobs. so chrysler's ceo felt the need to put the -- to set the record straight. he pointed out, mitt romney's lie for the second time. in an e-mail to employees he wrote "jeep assembly l
is important. >> eric: can we talk iowa? ohio. thank you. northern part of ohio is very democratic and obama. a lot of car companies, tire companies up there. southern part being republican. you want to go for the middle piece of ohio. if romney doesn't win ohio, gets iowa, wisconsin becomes the in play state. >> eric: wisconsin and you need to win two other states. >> bob: i'm giving him right now florida, north carolina, and virginia. >> eric: because he's lea leading. >> kimberly: you think it's better than the margin of error? >> bob: i get a sense they're falling back. he still needs to win -- without ohio he needs to win at least three states that obama won. iowa, wisconsin, colorado and -- >> eric: that's it. >> dana: some places you don't have papers anymore. in colorado "rocky mountain news" has shuttered. that was a paper that typically would endorse a republican. >> bob: new hampshire is the other one. >> dana: in some places i don't know if papers matter much but des moines was big. i admit it, i was wrong. i thought that the "register" telegraphs that they were going to endorse
more campaign events in ohio, president obama headed to the red cross to continue the role of healer in chief. >> there is no excuse for inaction. i want every agency to lean forward and make sure we are getting the resources where they need, where they're needed as quickly as possible. >> looking presidential in the final week of a tight campaign in a role that one rare praise today from governor chris christie. >> he has been attentive in anything i asked for, he got to me. it thank the president publicly for that. he has done, as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> biden has two solo ral his tomorrow in battleground florida and trying to drum up hispanic turnout telling univision talk show host that he and the president are breaking their neck to get real immigration law. clinton was in minnesota. a state that democrats were supposed to lock upped long ago. he tried to use a superstorm to hit republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming and economical beneficial ways. he said oh, you'll turn b
there in ohio, virtual dead heat. across the nation, much of the nation as well, president obama, mitt romney, are going to fan out across the battleground states over the next four days. both candidates will spend lots of time in ohio, because as ali pointed out, it's a dead heat. president, three events there. he's going to be talking jobs, and a national public radio poll 57% of those surveyed said economic issues are the most likely to affect their vote. cnn's brienne into keilar is live in grove city, ohio, this morning. good morning. >> good morning to you, cole dad. we do know that president obama will be addressing those jobs numbers when he speaks here. actually i should say, we are in hilliard, ohio, very close to grove city, just outside of columbus. so we know that he'll be addressing those jobs numbers. the big complication for him would be if the numbers were worse than expected. especially if they tick up to 8%, because that was an important sort of mental hurdle that the country cleared last month. and then for mitt romney, obviously, the complication would be if they're bette
, president obama has a bit of an edge in most of the polls here in ohio, but it's still statistically relevant. two things have to happen. one, they have to get out the vote. both these organizations have to get out the vote. there is that small group of voters that can still be convinced. today will be influential in convincing them, soledad, about which of these presidential candidates have a better vision and better ability to guide the future, all for president obama. is this working or is it not? >> interesting. let's get right to candy crowley. i think ali said something that was very interesting. you have this among republican governors where the states have done okay, have done well-ish in the slow recovery and so who gets the credit? in a way they're in a position where they can't say states are doing terribly because it doesn't help them in the narrative. and they can't say the states are doing great because it doesn't helm them in their narrative. >> it's been tough. all three run by republican governors. it's been tough but what they've done, for instance, when you look at
on monday and a dispatch poll out of ohio showing it tied up in ohio. team obama tells us you cannot believe these numbers. this is a manipulation by the folks that are on team romney to make us think these states are in play when in fact they are not. how are we to know the truth? >> we are not to know the truth until tuesday, here is the real truth, there is plenty of panic in chicago and boston, both sides here, this is total white knuckle time down to the end, it's what i live for, it's these moments when both campaigns are nervous about what is going on, that makes for good politics. megyn: that's what -- those of us who cover the race, that's when we win. >> exactly. megyn: all right, chris, thank you. >> you bet. megyn: the transit system that brings workers in and out of new york city moves more than 9 million passengers a day, 9 million. and it may be weeks until this is fully restored. we'll show you what that could mean for your bottom line just ahead. plus, the debate over one of the most offensive ads of the campaign season just ahead. >> if your voter suppression throughout thi
for the candidates to get their messages out. also, obama has the lead in virginia, 4-point lead. he's ahead in ohio. and to the extent that this -- the weather conditions in those states take the attention away from the election tmay freeze things in place. i think obama is going to win both virginia and ohio, i think it will be very, very close. i think this election's going to go doub to the wire. i suspect you will see both candidates as they readjust their schedule because of the weather, trying to pick the state where is they can have an impact. colorado is clearly in play. visix grandchildren in colrady on, i spend a lot of time out there. it's a classic swing state. i have a feeling, as the weather's bad on the east coast, you will see candidates in that part of the country. it is interesting, the implications of something like this. this is totally unexpected. but it's going to go right down to the wire. >> eric: you mentioned the storm, you mentioned the swing states. you have a bunch in the path of hurricane sandy. florida, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, north carolina, nevada and wiscons
the results of the presidential election. maybe. >> maybe. >> maybe. >> see what you do, ohio. in the meantime, president obama will tour hard hit areas of nudge today. mitt romney will hold three campaign events today. in florida, he turned a scheduled political rally yesterday in ohio in a bid to support sandy relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> democrats have been hammering romney over a statement he made at a debate last year in which he said some of fema's responsibilities should be turned over to the states. >>> and sandy is looming large over next week's presidential election with officials scrambling to make up for time lust to the stotime -- time lost to the storm. >> early voting sites were forced to close in battleground states like north carolina and virginia. maryland extended early voting to friday. pennsylvaniaians have until tomorrow to request an absentee ballot. despite the tragedy if you care about the election get out there and vote. >> hate to
it in ohio. >> reporter: yeah, and the obama campaign and other democrats are pointing to comments romney made way back in june of 2011 at a cnn republican presidential debate. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case-by-case basis and some people say the state should take on a bigger role. how do you deal with that? >> every time you take something from the federal government you need to send it back to the states. that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: john king at that debate back in 2011. yesterday mitt romney at a campaign event converted to a disaster relief event in ohio and was asked by reporters a number of times about what he would do with fema. take a listen to what he said. >> reporter: governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: what would you do with fema? >> you can see he didn't say much to those questions. the campaign says it would be better for the state to be in charge of disaster relief. >> paul steinh
" and cbs news shows president obama ahead 50-45 among likely voters in ohio, that is unchanged from last week. the race has gotten a lot closer in florida where support for governor romney is surging higher. the race there now a virtual tie, 48-47, five weeks ago the president was winning by nine. in virginia the president is leading by two points, 49-47. three weeks ago he was ahead by five. let's talk about these numbers with charlie hurt, a columnist for the washington times. so if you were one of these candidates, which would you rather be given the trend lines, charlie? >> i think that given the fact that all of these polls are closing which, by the way, is not very surprising the polls are closing at this point in the race, but they're all sort of closing in mitt romney's favor, i think i would rather be mitt romney at this exact moment. but, obviously, you know, when you look at polls such as ohio which is, you know, historically a must-win state for either candidate, you know, obama is still faring pretty well according to the polls. and i guess the big question is how much faith
. joining me today from ohio is former governor ted strickland an obama campaign surrogate about what we'll see this final week, basically rounding third base running into home. sir, it's good to have you with me today as we've been talking about the fact that we are seeing the president having to take himself off of the campaign trail, canceling events that were going to take place today, and canceling events tomorrow, as well. president obama added a handful of campaign stops in swing states, ohio being one of them. is bill clinton turning into the party's go-to guy to pick up the slack of what the president obviously can't be out there doing because his attention is needed for what's taking place with sandy recovery? >> sure, if you can't have the president or the vice president, certainly bill clinton, former president clinton is at the top of the list. he is well loved and respected here in ohio and throughout much of the rest of the country, and i think he's doing a wonderful thing for the president and understanding the circumstances of this storm, but, thomas, i think both campai
a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the final six days it's very clear it's going to go right down to the wire with anybody's guess in some of the battleground states in the quest for 270 electoral votes. national polls s. tied as is some of those battleground states even with the margin of error. shep? >> shepard: carl cammeron in jacksonville florida tonight. little relief for air travelers coming in and out of the nation's airspace after sandy. earlier today two of new york's airports reopened on a limited basis. jfk and newark liberty international across the river in jersey. port authority which runs all the airports is urging folks to call airlines for information. laguardia airport scheduled to reopen tomorrow morning. again, very limited and it's pretty amazing when you consider it looked like this. under water as recently as yesterday. the storm that produced floods all along the coast brought snow. look at west virginia. emergency officials report the weight of the sno
. that's a staches has had for 40 years. tough hurdle for mr. romney to clear in ohio. in the last 48 hours or so there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romney camp is trying to hedge against a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the final six days it's very clear it's going to go right down to the wire with anybody's guess in some of the battleground states in the quest for 270 electoral votes. national polls s. tied as is some of those battleground states even with the margin of error. shep? >> shepard: carl cammeron in jacksonville florida tonight. little relief for air travelers coming in and out of the nation's airspace after sandy. earlier today two of new york's airports reopened on a limited basis. jfk and newark liberty internation
